Our Mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.
La Leche League is an international, nonprofit, nonsectarian organization dedicated to providing education, information, support, and encouragement to families who want to breastfeed or chestfeed their babies. All parents and parents-to-be interested are welcome to call for help or information. Partners and other support people are also welcome to attend in some locations.
La Leche League Leaders are experienced parents who have breastfed or chestfed their own babies and who have been trained and accredited by La Leche League International to help parents and parents-to-be with all aspects of nursing their babies. They are available by phone whenever you have questions or concerns. Only accredited La Leche League Leaders are authorized to represent and/or speak for La Leche League International.
